Fraternity & Sorority Experience Survey
Share |

The Fraternity & Sorority Experience Survey (FSES) provides an overview of perceptions about and satisfaction with the fraternity/sorority experience. 

The Center for Fraternity and Sorority Research hosts the Fraternity/Sorority Experience Survey for institutions and inter/national organizations to distribute to their membership online. The FSES contains 33 questions and is organized into five constructs: 

  • Learning: academic experiences, educational programming, mentoring and leadership
  • Values:integrating fraternity and/or sorority into life, personal growth and development, civic/community engagement
  • Alcohol/Social Issues: alcohol and drug use, social and sexual misconduct, intervention behaviors
  • Operations: chapter activities, advising, alumni/ae involvement, membership intake process
  • Community: sense of belonging, impact of chapter housing on experience, relationships outside the chapter

The data collected and presented in the summary report provides an overview of perceptions about and satisfaction with the fraternity/sorority experience. FSES measures learning outcomes associated with the Association of American Colleges and Universities Essential Learning Outcomes (LEAP), Call for Values Congruence (Franklin Square Group) and the Council for the Advancement of Standards in Higher Education (CAS). Universities/headquarters receive the raw data in a SPSS file, national scores to use as a benchmark, a summary report highlighting significant data, and a follow-up to help interpret and use the data.

"The FSES is a truly useful tool in helping fraternity/sorority professionals to be more targeted in their approaches to create cultural change in their communities. The survey is steeped in a framework that references relevant student learning and assessment models, and provides a good combination of concrete program expectations and student perception." - Jason Bergeron, University of Houston
